 The deepest longing of your
heart is for one person and one
 place. Jesus is that person.
     Heaven is that place.

        Randy Alcorn,
      In Light of Eternity
 If I find in myself a desire which no
experience in this world can satisfy,
   the most probable explanation is
  that I was made for another world.

If you aim at heaven, you’ll get earth
thrown in. If you aim at earth, you’ll
             get nothing.

             C.S. Lewis
 I judge all things only by
the price they shall gain in

       John Wesley
It ought to be the business
of every day to prepare for
       our last day.

     Matthew Henry
The weakness of so many modern Christians is
that they feel too much at home in the world. In
 their effort to achieve restful "adjustment" to
    unregenerate society they have lost their
pilgrim character and become an essential part
 of the very moral order against which they are
sent to protest. The world recognizes them and
accepts them for what they are. And this is the
   saddest thing that can be said about them.
They are not lonely, but neither are they saints.

                   A W Tozer
               2 Corinthians 4:16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though
   outwardly we are wasting away, yet
 inwardly we are being renewed day by
    day. For our light and momentary
troubles are achieving for us an eternal
glory that far outweighs them all. So we
fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on
   what is unseen. For what is seen is
    temporary, but what is unseen is
            Revelation 21:4

He will wipe every tear from their
eyes. There will be no more death
or mourning or crying or pain, for
   the old order of things has
         passed away.”
               John 14:2-3

   In my Father’s house are many
rooms; if it were not so, I would have
told you. I am going there to prepare
   a place for you. And if I go and
 prepare a place for you, I will come
back and take you to be with me that
    you also may be where I am.
              John 11:25-26

     Jesus said to her, “I am the
  resurrection and the life. He who
believes in me will live, even though
   he dies; and whoever lives and
believes in me will never die. Do you
            believe this?”
                  1 John 5:11-13

 . . . God has given us eternal life, and this
life is in his Son. He who has the Son has
life; he who does not have the Son of God
              does not have life.

I write these things to you who believe in
 the name of the Son of God so that you
   may know that you have eternal life.
                  1 Corinthians 3:11-15
For no one can lay any foundation other than
the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If
   any man builds on this foundation using
   gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or
 straw, his work will be shown for what it is,
because the Day will bring it to light. It will be
  revealed with fire, and the fire will test the
  quality of each man’s work. If what he has
built survives, he will receive his reward. If it
 is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself
   will be saved, but only as one escaping
              through the flames.
             Matthew 6:19-20

   Do not store up for yourselves
treasures on earth, where moth and
  rust destroy, and where thieves
 break in and steal. But store up for
  yourselves treasures in heaven,
where moth and rust do not destroy,
 and where thieves do not break in
             and steal.
Who wants to go to
            Philippians 1:21

For to me, to live is Christ and to
           die is gain.
            Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven. And
we eagerly await a Savior from there,
 the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the
   power that enables him to bring
  everything under his control, will
 transform our lowly bodies so that
 they will be like his glorious body.
